Re: Mary Shane of Virginia-have info

In Reply to: Mary Shane of Virginia by Linda Hatherley of 327

Mary Shane was born abt 1760 PA d.abt 1850 VA
She married Jacob Castle, Jr. b. abt 1749 PA d.betwn 1840-49. He was the son of Jacob Castle/Cassell, Sr. and Sowege (Gilding Swan), a Shawnee Indian from Western, PA.
The children that I know of are:
1.Zedekiah Alan Castle b. 5/15/1788 Russell County, VA d. 9/17/1851 in Lawrence County, KY m. Julia Ann Penix b.12/27/1795 Russell County, VA.
2.John Castle
3.Nathan Castle
4. Unknown dau (We think it maybe Mary).

There is conflicting information that has been put out about the Zedekiah's parentage. His father was not Joseph or Bazle Castle and Gemimey Hensley. This was his aunt and Uncle that him and his brothera and sisters lived with in Floyd County, KY. Joseph never paid taxes on them and their are no records showing that Joseph and Gemimey had any children of their own. I'm still looking into why they lived with them, but any things possible. As for Mary Shane, Try checking out PA records. The Castle's were from Lancaster County and one Castle signed the original Charter for Germantown PA.
